Description

Returns a Drives collection consisting of all Drive objects available on the local machine.

Syntax

object.Drives

The object is always a FileSystemObject.

Remarks

Removable-media drives need not have media inserted for them to appear in the Drives collection.

You can iterate the members of the Drives collection using a For Each...Next construct as illustrated in the following code:

Sub ShowDriveList
    Dim fs, d, dc, s, n
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set dc = fs.Drives
    For Each d in dc
        s = s & d.DriveLetter & " - " 
        If d.DriveType = 3 Then
            n = d.ShareName
        Else
            n = d.VolumeName
        End If
        s = s & n & vbCrLf
    Next
    MsgBox s
End Sub
